It may be snowing here in New Jersey as I write this, but it didn’t stop me from heading outdoors and completing another gardening task today. Today was all about pruning the Redtwig Dogwood ‘Arctic Fire’.
My lone Redtwig Dogwood is unfortunately, in a location where I can’t let it grow as large as it desires. ‘Arctic Fire’ maxes out at about 5′ x 4′ (don’t believe what a lot of other sites will tell you). I had no other choice but to plant it in a bed along the front of my home where I’ve managed to shield it from the deer for years now. Anywhere else in the yard and it would be toast.
Because of that, I potentially have to prune it for size control for the first time this spring.
So let’s now unveil the final decision via video. How will he be pruning the Redtwig Dogwood?
There we have it. Time to chop it down to the ground.
So another pruned shrub to keep a close eye on this spring/summer. Fun stuff.
Nothing has ever worked or felt better in the hand. A serious endorsement for this one.
Have a great weekend.
